Water Trails

The Water Trails of Ocean Pines

With over 10 miles of water trails that are all accessible from our community, Ocean Pines is a paddler’s dream! From the quiet waters and wildlife-viewing opportunities of Manklin Creek, to the open waters and beautiful beaches of the Isle of Wight Bay, Ocean Pines has something for every skill and interest level. Paddle to the Yacht Club for lunch, pack a picnic for White Horse Park, go birding through a salt marsh creek, or cross the St. Martin River to enjoy the beaches of Worcester County’s Isle of Wight Nature Park!

When paddling Ocean Pines water trails, always wear a PFD/life jacket. The U.S. Coast Guard requires that all paddlers have a life jacket and a whistle on board. A water bottle, sun protection, and a means of communication (cell phone or VHF radio) are also recommended.

Click each icon for more information on launch locations, parking, potential hazards, photos, and points of interest along the trails.

Great for beginners! Calm waters with little boat traffic.

Intermediate level. Wind, distance, and boat traffic could be a challenge.

Advanced level, for experienced paddlers only. The Isle of Wight Bay can have quite a bit of boat traffic, and the open waters can get quite choppy.
